If you pick parts that haven't been tested together, you're paying your money and taking your chances. But if you go to Tom's hardware site and pick one that's been tested, you're much less likely to run into trouble.
I need help on my first pc build, I need to know a motherboard/mainboard that can support overclocking and all the parts below.
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Also am I missing anything besides the motherboard/mainboard?
For example, does the CPU cooler come with the CPU?
Are all the cables included in the items? Are all the parts compatible? Since I am completely new to this I don't know what to look for, so your advice could really help me.
